Kunal Ganjawala is an Indian singer, known primarily for his work as a Bollywood playback singer. His breakthrough hit, Bheegey Hont from the film Murder, won the 2005 Zee Cine Award for Best Playback Singer (male). He is the man whose voice mesmerised listeners with its sensuous appeal  in Murder’s “Bheege Honth", made you sway with “Channa Ve", and sets  your tap toes tapping to “Kaal Dhamal", an item song in Kaal.


This is what Kunal has to say “I was not even a bathroom singer. I  began singing only when I was ragged by my seniors as a fresher in  Elphinston College, Mumbai. I was passing by them whistling a tune when  a few of them caught hold of me and commanded, `Sing a song’. I was  shocked. I said I never sang in my life. They said, `Jhoot bolta hai.  When he can whistle tunes so well, why can’t he sing?’ They caught hold  of my neck saying, they would throttle me if I didn’t. With great  difficulty I sang “Nazar ke samne” (Aashiqui) and “Ik din bik jayega”  (Dharam Karam). They spared me then but made me sing in college  festivals later.”
